QUITMAN, GA (WALB) - Three men and one juvenile are under arrest for the shooting death of a Quitman teenager late Saturday night.

Brooks County Sheriffs have arrested thirty-three-year-old Willie Phelps and charged him with the murder of 19 year old Christopher Deshad Sloan. 

Thirty-nine-year-old Kenneth Brinson, seventeen-year-old Kenneth Williams, and a sixteen-year-old male are charged with Party to the Commission of a Crime.

Witnesses say the shooting occurred after an argument took place at the Westwind Apartments on Hill Avenue.  The suspects came to confront Sloan about an argument he had had with one of their relatives earlier that day.
